I'm a writer from Birmingham, Alabama. I've traveled a great deal and moved a bit, which has influenced my creativity in a positive way by breaking my comfort zone and exposing me to different perspectives. My interest and adoration of creative fiction in different forms (comics, video games, film, etc) evolved into a desire to become an influential part of those industries on various levels.

I moonlight as a podcast host, having been offered my own show (Coins 2 Continue, which I co-host with my wonderful friend Katie aka Pikachulita) on the Blindbox Network after having entertaining regular appearances on other podcasts and YouTube videos. 

If you're looking for an engaging writer with his finger on the pulse of tech and entertainment, clean copy, and an energetic personality -- I'm your guy. If you're looking for original and exciting fiction, I've got a few ideas there too. Stay tuned.

Professional Experience

I've covered entertainment media with a focus on gaming, comics, Hip Hop, and film on various smaller websites in the past along with my own blog, but I took the professional leap into entertainment journalism in 2014. I write editorials, listicles, blog posts, news updates, and more. I've developed a well informed voice through my writing, but I continue to learn as the entertainment industry evolves. 

My articles have appeared on Vice/Motherboard, Playboy, Pixelkin, The Koalition, ZAM, and others. Previously, I covered immersive technology for UploadVR while continuing to do freelance entertainment writing. As of 2017, I write full-time as News Editor for the legendary Shacknews. The EIC there gave me a shot after I left UploadVR and it's been a wonderful ride with a fantastic  team. We're building something absolutely amazing there, so stay tuned.

I was commissioned to write the biographies for the board members of A Looking Glass Project, an organization based out of Baltimore. I also maintained the adoption blog for The Greater Birmingham Humane Society for a short time (webpage now defunct).

I've written short fiction for a long while, only sharing my creations since around 2007. I've gotten back to writing regularly in this style and I'm pursuing opportunities related to it as well. I'm also creating a book series on indie game development called Going Indie. The process has been hectic and a lot of fun as I collaborate with my fellow writer David Jagneaux, but we're excited to bring this wonderful collection to the world in the near future.


Charles is a talented writer who is very knowledgable in the fields of technology, gaming, culture, and more. He has written two articles for VIE magazine and has been a valuable voice contributing to our team of freelance writers. He takes direction well, is quick to respond and willing to make edits when requested, and brings a fresh take on the art and travel industries with insight on new technology. We look forward to working with him again!
